Even now the lockdown is easing, days at home may still seem long – and it is still tempting to snack away the time!
Today’s play idea is a way to have chats with your child about different kinds of food, and how we need to balance the different types
As you set up a shop together, your child can have a real experience of buying and selling – learning as well about money, shops and even some economics and politics (who says you can make sweets more expensive than fruit – is it fair?!)
A nice, colourful fruit kebab is refreshing and fun to make with your child, especially during warm weather.
It can sometimes be tricky to get children to taste new fruits and this is a great way of helping them to have a wee try whilst having fun.
At the same time, they will be learning vocabulary about colours, food, about before/after, big/small – and practising finger skills that are great for pre-writing, as well as learning about patterns and sorting
